S | 27 YEAR-OLD | ASIAN | FEMALE | REAL ESTATE AGENT | CHINA
WHAT WAS DONE?
S works as a real estate agent in New York. She had an unknown substance injected to her nose a few years ago in China. She was told it was hyaluronic acid but it never went away and actually grew bigger with time according to her. She became increasingly worried and came for consultation. On exam, a circular mass near the nasal radix could be felt and she had an obvious nasal deviation with a flattened tip. Rhinoplasty was done to remove the foreign body and straighten her nose. Autologous cartilage was also used to increase the tip projection. There were only millimeter changes but gave her an overall improved look that is natural and unoperated.
BEFORE AND AFTER
我的人中鼻子地方以前打针长了个息肉，很久了越长越大，自己很担心才下定决心要取出来，顺便整一下鼻头变挺一点。但是 去其他医生都说不敢保证能把息肉拿出来， 还说要用假体整鼻子。 在咨询可否用自体的做，都没有得到让我满意的回答 感觉很不专业。 威廉姆医生很 honest 一看就明确告诉我 他会做的步骤并且他认为用自体软骨最安全。起初我还有点担心，但是见过医生后，他对我的问题耐心解答以及给我专业的意見讓我很放心。进手术室之前医生也过来看过几次，再详细的讲述了一下手术过程，护士也特别耐心。整个手术很顺利 手术一醒就看到医生和护士了 对病人很照顾。 要在手术后的follow up 也很到位。 现在的样子很自然，朋友都看不出来整了，只说看上去不同了的样子小了点就是说不出哪里不一样[Chuckle]我對手術結果很非常的滿意！很细心，负责的医生

V, teenager, Caucasian
V is a teenager who had been teased in school for many years for the appearance of her nose. She had a large dorsal hump and a bulbous tip. After extensive discussion with both V and her mom, rhinoplasty was done to reduce the overall size but project her nasal tip while removing the large dorsal hump. She was very happy with the result, immediately started taking selfies as soon as her splint was removed.
E, 23, African, Ghana
E is a 23 year old medical student. She came from Ghana to study in New York. She was concerned with the dorsal hump on her nose and did not like the rounded and flattened appearance of her nasal tip. After consultation, her small dorsal hump was reduced and autologous cartilage was used to increase the projection of her nose while reducing the roundedness.
C, 41, Hispanic
C previously had a rhinoplasty done a few years ago in Colombia to decrease the size of her nose. It was, however, overdone. She ended up with a noticeable depression in the center of her nose and the edges of the remaining nasal bone were visible. Revision rhinoplasty was done through a close approach to correct this defect. Her nose looked natural and normal again.
B, 33, Hispanic
B also had a rhinoplasty done in Colombia a few years ago. However, she was not satisfied with the amount of correct and also she was left with a deviated septum. A closed rhinoplasty was done to correct this defect without any scars on the outside skin.
D, 41, Indian
D did not like the hook look of her nasal tip. She also wanted her tip to be more projected at the same time. Rhinoplasty surgery was done to increase the projection of her tip and improve the hooking tip. The changes are subtle but noticeable and natural.
